Yes. Even if an women is not covered under ESIC she will be entitled to get maternity benefit as per the maternity benefit Act. Presently it is 6 weeks pre natal and 6 week post natal.


Dear Jaya Please refer Maternity Benefit Act, in which you will get the complete details about the Maternity Benefits to be given to a female employee of any organisation.

pretty sad. very harsh reaction from them!! Instead of resigning you could have submitted your Doctor's certificate, stating that commuting is unhealthy for both of you and your child. Hence, has to be considered.

But since you have resigned, the matter has lost its weight. You may approach a court but proving it become bit difficult, and it depends on many other parameters. But, you may reclaim your job, through the court, ofcourse having a personal talk with the management of the company, stating the reasons and for declining the benefits you are bound to get...

Still you have chances if you serve them a notice reclaiming your job giving the reasons and circumstances that your forced to resign but not by will, taking up the arguments as advised by doctor was not healthy so had to take the initial temporary relief, but you still in need of job and claiming your right, otherwise the company will be forced to answer in the courts of law.

I do not say, you neglect such unethical and merciless management behaviour.....

So think and take the proper action.....

Happy motherhood :-)

It is unfortunate that the managements resort to such tactics to avoid giving benefits to the employees! Unless Mrs. Chhabra wants to get into the organization again, she can approach the labour commissioner and get the maternity benefits clearly explaining how the management forced her to change the location just to avoid paying the benefits. If however, she wants to get back into the same organization, she should reconcile to foregoing the benefit and break in servie
